“Celebrating achievements, planning for the future”: EU-OSHA publishes its 2016 annual report

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > “Celebrating achievements, planning for the future”: EU-OSHA publishes its 2016 annual report

EU-OSHA’s annual report outlines its major activities in 2016. To give just a few examples, last year EU-OSHA published findings from the latest edition of the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2). The initial findings of the project on safety and health in micro and small enterprises (SESAME) were also released. 

EU‑OSHA’s many activities concerning safety and health in the context of an ageing workforce, including developments in the 2016-17 Healthy Workplaces Campaign, are also covered.

The annual report also looks to the future, notably with news on plans for the 2018-19 campaign on dangerous substances.
